The Energy Saving Action Plan focuses on the penetration of renewables, energy efficiency improvements, energy efficiency labelling and education, information, and technology innovation. It is unclear to what extent the objectives of the Programme have been achieved. According to critics, in general performance has been poor, attributed to a lack of co-ordination among the institutions involved, limitations to the application of DSM by utilities, problems with enforcing building standards, a lack of awareness campaigns to accompany the introduction of labels, and a lack of substantial incentives for renewable energy.
